The hotel is full of young people, staff is very nice. It's obviously not a luxury hotel but for a budget one it is perfect. The atmosphere is relaxing, a lot of spaces in the lobby with tables to have breakfast or work or play cards...aso. I don't quite like budget hotels but this one is more than ok. It...

I was in transit with my family, we spent there one night. Nothing special about this hotel, everything is good, perfect for transit. Clean rooms, very good quality of sleeping. Good location 15 - 20 min walking to city center. Very good value for money.

This hotel was incredibly cheap, only €30 per person for a triple room for 2 nights. The hotel is very central and very close to the Roßauer Lände U4 station where you can take the U-Bahn into the city centre. You would also be able to walk into the city centre from the hotel but as it was pretty cold...

Nice at first glance, but comes with many pitfalls of budget hotels. The choice of leaving the concrete walls in their raw unpainted finish made our particular room feel dirty, as all the stains from previous guests were there on the walls. The lunch, which we took in hotel, was downright horrible -- probably the worst lasagna I have ever...

Clean rooms, although shower was designed for the disabled which is fair enough but would have been nice to not have to bend over to wash yourself or have someone else hold the shower head. Didn't sleep first night as a group of people were yelling laughing and talking all night outside of my room. Second night exact same story...

Our family of 4 stayed at Meininger Franz Vienna for 3 days in early January 2017.

This hotel is a great option if you're interested in good quality for your money. The staff is very friendly, helpful and speaks English. Rooms are basic, but clean, modern, comfortable, as well as bathrooms. The street is very quiet and there is a supermarket nearby.

This is actually a review I forgot to do last year, however as we traveled with young children I thought I should get around to it. The hotel was clean, basic, uncluttered and comfortable. Breakfast was the usual toast, cereal and cold (salami, ham, cheese) as well as coffee/tea. The lobby has a games area, and kitchen facilities. The staff...

I stayed here in Nov 2016. It is very near to subway and you can come easily from airport (though it was a bit challenge for me). The main central district is walking distance.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
